The province of Guanacaste, also known as Costa Rica’s Gold Coast, is located in the North Western corner of the country. Guanacaste is home to some of Costa Rica’s most beautiful and famous beaches. For years visitors from all over the world have flocked to this hidden gem of the world. The town of Tamarindo in Guanacaste was one of the first spots in Costa Rica to receive international attention; thanks to the world class surfing that can be found in this area. Since then, the area has developed and Guanacaste real estate is now amongst the hottest in the country..
The towns and beaches in close to proximity to Tamarindo that have some of the most appealing real estate options are Playa Flamingo, Playa Conchal, and Playa Grande. Real estate in these areas has been featured several times on the popular Home and Garden Network Program, House Hunters International, helping draw more attention to this remarkably beautiful area. Tamarindo serves as the main hub for activities and amenities in the region, and is also home to a domestic airport, making travel from this region to the rest of the country very easy. By car or private shuttle, the Guanacaste region is about a five hour drive from San Jose, making it close enough to the country’s largest metropolitan area, but giving enough distance to feel as though you are living in a remote part of paradise. Once you have purchased Guanacaste real estate, you need not travel all the way to San Jose for an international flight. The new Daniel Oduber International Airport, located in Liberia, the provincial capital of Guanacaste, is located only one hours drive from the beaches of Tamarindo and the surrounding area. The ease of international travel to and from Guanacaste is just one of the reasons why real estate in the region is becoming so popular.
Another reason why Guanacaste real estate is so popular is due to the almost too good to be true weather that the region experiences. Guanacaste is the land of eternal spring, with warm, sunny days almost year round. The average temperature in Guanacaste ranges from the high 60’s to the mid 80’s (degrees Fahrenheit), year round, making it the ideal climate for those who love sunshine and never ending perfect beach days. The region’s rainy season is from May to November, with the dry season lasting from December through April. Despite the rain though, the temperature remains enjoyable and anytime is a great time to visit Guanacaste.
